Each year, CCF receives over $1 million in requests for research funding. Unfortunately, we cannot fund all requests. Grant requests are reviewed by an independent panel of medical reviewers and consideration is given to local researchers and facilities. We believe that our value is strongest by funding research than can benefit all pediatric cancer patients.
Grant guidelines for the 2018 funding year will be posted here in February 2018. Be sure to sign up for our mailing list to be notified when it is released. Proposals for 2018 consideration will be due at at 11:59 PM (EST) May 4, 2018.
Please note that funding priority will be given to local researchers (D.C., Maryland, and N. Virginia) and funding availability varies each year.
